TIME FOR TIFFIN: NEW MEAL DEAL LAUNCHES TODAY AT HISTORIC BRIGG VENUE
A new meal deal is due to launch in Brigg today (Tuesday, June 25) and we expect it to prove particularly popular with diners.
The Thai Meal Deal is available from today at The Exchange, which has pedestrian access off Wrawby Street (through the archway) and Bigby Street.
For a tenner, diners can enjoy a two-course meal and a pint.
There's a choice: Starter and main course, or main course and dessert.
The Exchange has also launched Steak Nights on Wednesdays, with another coming up tomorrow.
This popular licensed venue closed recently for internal refurbishment/redecoration.
We are pleased to see that the historic Tiffin Room, on the ground floor, has reopened to the public and is being used to seat additional diners.
Some of the Tiffin's fine period features date back to the 18th century when the Exchange was built.
If you use the Tiffin, try to identify famous characters from the past whose busts are displayed in this room, which looks out on Bigby Street.
Joe Mullen, owner of the Exchange, invited Brigg Blog along to see the Tiffin Room and to obtain details of the Meal Deal and Steak Nights from manager Mark Burns and staff.
The Exchange, built in 1760, is Brigg's only grade two star listed building.
Joe also gave us a guided tour of rooms on the upper floors that are not currently open to the public.
This proved fascinating and we even ventured onto the roof, enjoying panoramic views of the town centre, and beyond.
Brigg Blog will write at length about this tour of the Exchange, with pictures included, at a later date.
